Me at White Cup Coffeehouse show.


Feb. 6, 2011 -Florida Artist Cecil Herring Closed her Mixed Media Art Show of 23 oils, acrylics and digital original art works at White Cup Coffeehouse, DeBary, FL yesterday.
"I had a wonderful show" said Cecil yesterday as she loaded her van for future events to be announced! Cecil sold three works to happy buyers!

Cecil is a collectible artist. Works on display were for sale. Cecil maintains a studio in Deltona and enjoys a fine social art life in Central Florida incorporating her art work, e-mail, FaceBook and 300 friends, give or take a few.

"I used to be a bit lonely making art in my studio! Now, now with Facebook I can paint and keep up with my friends. I just check my e-mail. I love my life. I have PayPal on my website! I sell my art works off my site or in my galleries! No more sidewalk shows. I did hundreds of street shows in the early days when there were no venues in Florida! Now, I feel free, creative and rested. My feet wore out so I'm glad technology came and saved my feet! A website does help! It's my portfolio on line! I'm glad I joined the computer age when it started because I can take part in the social media life. My love of news and being a reporter works well with my love of art."
"For example, White Cup Coffeehouse has Wi-Fi! So I bring my computer with Wi-fi and hang out, make digital art, demonstrate how I make digital art, and visit with my coffeehouse friends. My motto is 'get out more and enjoy the coffeehouse life. Besides that, White Cup has wonderful coffee and tasty treats."
White Cup hours: is open Monday through Thursday 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday 7 a.m. to midnight, and Sunday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Address is 15 S. 17-92 at corner of Highbanks and 17-92 Southeast corner.

Herring Digital Art Illustrates Economic Meltdown

"I guess you could say God predicted this in Revelations!" Cecil said.

Brixstone Report, British financial newsletter used my art to illustrate our global financial recession. I received a call from London from Mr. Duncan Lamb of the Brixtone Report who said he would like to use my art to illustrate the economic meltdown the world is experiencing... of course I said yes. He paid me using my PayPal. Wall Street Journal also called me for permission to use the same image.

Cecil Herring digital work "Apocalypse - Four Horsemen" published by Brixstone Report, a London financial publication Aug 2008

"As we all know, we did have and still have the awful depression all over our country. I used my photos taken at Hialeah Racetrack in Miami and recolored each horse as in the Revelations descriptions! Brixton Report editor said it described what happened to the world economy!" Cecil said.

Terry Hummel, well known art critic of the Orlando Sentinel wrote this nice article about my guest artist appearance at the sumptuous Hotel and Restaurant including an art gallery in 2004. What a fabulous night it was. Vintners from Australia and New Zealand combined their lovely wines with Chef John Clarks's cuilinary talents at a dinner to remember along with my art works with the themed dinner called "The Near and Far Away in tastes, travels and paintings." No detail was overlooked down to the specially hand painted table linens, special space music and lighting. Even the entry way was a happening into another planetary horizon with black lights and silver orbiting lights.

Indepth Arts News:

"Cecil Herring: Rediscovering Florida"
2005-09-02 until 2005-09-30
DeBary Hall
DeBary, FL, USA United States of America

Cecil Herring's art exhibition: "Rediscovering Florida" opens Sept. 2 at DeBary Hall in DeBary, Florida. The show features Herrings latest works of landscapes and florals, scenes of Florida. Herring's selections are brilliantly colored watercolors and digital media. DeBary Hall was the winter retreat of a European-born wine merchant, Frederick deBary, who chose the St. Johns River country for his hunting estate.

From Herring's Artist statement- " 'Find your bliss,' the great Philosopher- Anthropologist Joseph Campbell advised. Campbell was right. I found my 'bliss' in 1956, 49 years ago. I have loved every minute I have spent creating art works and to this day I still love my time spent painting and sculpting. Time stops and I don't age!"

Cecil Herring has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist since 2004. View more of her works at http://www.absolutearts.com/portfolios/c/cecilherring/

Deltona painter rediscovers Florida
DeBary Hall exhibit starts today

DATE: September 2, 2005
PUBLICATION: Daytona Beach News-Journal (FL)
SECTION: Section E

story continues...


When they go on view at today's DeBary Hall opening reception, the paintings in "Rediscovering Florida" will be close-up and personal. That's partly because the works by Cecil Herring deal with the state's natural subjects, from a view of Lake Osceola to orchids and the old cabbage palm growing by the side of the road. But it's also because of the Deltona artist's very direct approach.

"Last year, I started rediscovering my own Florida, so to speak," said Herring, a native of Miami, who has lived in Central Florida for decades.


"And, in the spring, I got carried away with the colors. It seemed as if the amaryllises bloomed all at once and my tabebuia tree was so gorgeous that I just went out with my paints and a palette knife and painted it on the spot," she said.

That started the series of outdoor, or "plein air," paintings that are featured in her solo exhibit. Not only do its 12 paintings - 11 oil-on-canvas and one the new study of the hot-pink cyclamen that sparked her creativity - capture the essence of what inspired Herring.


They also embody the whole experience of painting in the open air. "These show all the beauty - and the time and trouble," she said, laughing. "The sun, wind, bugs that caused me a lot of exhaustion. One day on the St. Johns River, I saw a great Florida cabbage palm.

"The wind was blowing, so I did it as fast as possible, with the largest tools possible - trowels and big tubes of paint that I squeezed right on the canvas," said Herring. "I finally tied my canvas to the back of my van and slathered on the color. Sometimes I even scratched into the surface to get details. It was a nightmare, but it was so much better than painting from photographs - I could really show how it felt to be there.


"Even back in the '60s, when I was a student at the University of Florida, I could not stand it unless I went out in the field to work - I loved being in those rolling hills," she said. "I saw Florida as a magic fairyland, and I got that kind of feeling again last year. It's all there, in the thick paints on the canvas: a magic fairyland."

If You Go

WHAT: "Rediscovering Florida: Paintings by Cecil Herring," through Sept. 29. Free opening reception 5-7 p.m. today.
